BACK TO THE LAMY ORIGINS

- A comeback that has been 40 years in the making.

 

One of LAMY’s most proud achievements over it’s 90 year long history is to

have realized a writing- instrument forevery age-group. In February 2021 we

celebrate the LAMY safari, one of our greatest icons.



THE ORIGINS

 

In the late 1970’s, LAMY was on a mission to design a pen for school students,

who outgrew their childhood fountain pens -and thus the LAMY safari was born.

LITERALLY THROWN OUT OF A WINDOW


At the time, a pen specifically for students between the ages of 6 -16 did

not exist, which is why the youthful, yet sophisticated, functional and

contemporary design of the safari was met with great success. 


Particular attention was paid to durability when the safari was being designed, which is

why when it received its field test, it was put into a school bag and thrown out of a window

- and received the codename of ‘OUTDOOR’.

TIMELESS DESIGN


40 years later the LAMY safari remains one of LAMY’s most successful writing

instruments - which is why almost every year the safari receives its own special

edition. It’s sought after by all age groups for its avant-garde design, it’s iconic

status and its durability. 



ON A SAFARI IN VIETNAM


While the original safari was inspired by the deep green of the savannah

and the intense red soil of Africa, these colors can be rediscovered in the

bamboo forests of Hia Giang and the Bazan red basalt soil in Vietnam’s

central highlands. 




Let us pay special homage to the safari with our origins special edition in two original colors.
